Title: Virtual Power Plants for Energy-Autonomous Regions
The project is about detecting the theoretical and effective power generation potential of the renewable energy sources biomass, photovoltaic, water power and wind power within an exemplary study area. Through the combination of the individual energy sources with virtual power plants and their correlation to the power demand structure, energy-autonomous regions will be modeled. The results of the project, with particular regard to renewable energy sources, illustrate the value of a regionally organized energy supply and offer a supportive instrument for decision-making via a geographical perspective.
